Floating log

It's vertical because it is heavier at one end, I'd put money on it. That's how all these alien beacons work. It helps guide them to where good fruit picking jobs are.

What crap journalism is that title?

"scientist don't know why"? Could it be that no one has studied it?

Go back to BuzzFeed, hack.

Bullshit

You filmed in the water and didn't show the underside? Obvious hoax.

Video Not Available

What possible reason would there be to geolock a video about a tree floating in a lake, honestly!

geolock

I just used a vpn to watch a geo-locked video about a floating tree. I think that's even more baffling.

Old Man Stump

No one has tried to remove this and sell it? Shocking

J more than 1 year ago

Not as shocking as you might think

That would be a logistical nightmare. Only one trail goes down to the lake, and private boats aren't allowed. Add in the fact that the Old Man is 30-feet of solid wood, and there's no way anyone could get him out.

Plus the water weight

30 ft of water logged tree at that. It would take a crane to lift it.

water weight

Like the choppers that dump giant buckets of water on fires.

Sikorsky S-64 Skycrane

This helicopter can lift 11 tons. It could easily lift that stump.

An alien beacon, I'm sure of it

I'm not saying Aliens, but...

Please don't automatically assume aliens. There's a perfectly good (unfound) scientific explanation for this.

Aliens

No he's right, definitely extra terrestrial communication.

Actually,

I know for a fact that aliens are behind this.

Darryl more than 1 year ago

Fact

I've seen aliens wandering around the banks, looking/pointing at the stump.

Scientific aliens.

Smart Wildlife

It's most likely some kind of collaboration between the raccoons, marmots and beavers in the area. Possibly.involving owls and otters but unlikely. I wonder where else their organic submarine technogy has been deployed?

Rolf more than 1 year ago

Marmots are suspicious

The marmots are the ringleaders in all this. They've got the otters tying tubular webbing to the stump, schlumping it back to shore where waiting raccoons rig it into harnesses for elk to drag around. Mysterious movements, hah!
